How Do You Like Them Pineapples? Introducing RumChata’s New Sip of the Summer

Reminiscent of tan lines, white sand, and turquoise waters, everyone’s favorite tiki ingredient, the tart and juicy pineapple, is entering a new, creamier chapter.

Permanently in vacation mode since last year’s Coconut Cream launch, RumChata is taking a one-way trip to the tropics with Pineapple Cream, a sunny burst of pineapple flavor complemented by waves of smooth vanilla. It tastes like soaking up rays on a white sand beach with your favorite people and favorite cocktail by your side.

“Last year, our fans’ enthusiasm for tropical flavors was evident with the success of RumChata Coconut Cream,” says Brandon Lieb, vice president of marketing for Spirit of Gallo. “As summer approaches, we’re thrilled to unveil our latest innovation, RumChata Pineapple Cream, which is reminiscent of summer tiki drinks.”

Made with RumChata’s signature premium Caribbean rum, Midwestern dairy cream, and a burst of fresh pineapple flavor, Pineapple Cream evokes all the dreaminess of a lush getaway, planning not required.
